Let the nesting begin.

After being gone from my internet so long, I’ve forgotten nearly everything I wanted to blog about!

I’ll just recap.

Friday: Woke up and drove to our closing. It was freakin FREEZING out. Closing went well. Signed my name 3,294 times. Signed once with my maiden name by accident – oops – just to much pressure with having to remember my middle initial and everything. Handed over our dollars, they got theirs, we got keys. It was not as exciting as I thought it would be. (Mostly because we couldn’t really get in the house until 10am Saturday.) We went and got lunch, then picked up the truck. The hubs and his brother-in-law loaded up the stuff from his parents house and I went to Target and spent $$. Went home and finished packing up the apartment.

Saturday: Woke up bright and early – moved all day. Boo-boo (the cat) did not care for the move at all. He basically just growled and hissed for about 20 hours. He’s better now. Miles (the cat) took it pretty well. He’s such a nice boy. (That’s because he’s mine. The hubs’ cat’s the unsociable one. :)

The hubs’ mom, sister and I unpacked the kitchen and put the bed together while the boys rested between trips. Thank god they helped with that stuff. It was fun unpacking all the wedding gifts. It’s like everything in our kitchen is brand new!

Sunday: The most fun day. The hubs and I decided to go and buy the things we needed (and wanted) for the house. I’ll fill you in on the fun purchases:

PetSmart: Christmas toys for the kitties and a pet door for the laundry room so they can get in to poop while the door is closed.

Crate and Barrel: Misc stuff. Mostly fulfilling the registry, getting our 10% off and using $300 in gift cards. I wish shopping was always like that. :)

Slumberland Furniture: An ottoman. Was $250, on sale for $99, then a “deep discount” price of $50.

IKEA: Two dressers (one for him and one for me), a little table for the stereo in the living room, and a “coffee table” we’re using as a TV stand.

Target: Table runner for Christmas party, outdoor firepit, new trash can, baking soda for the fridge, silverware organizer, fireplace tools, etc. More gift cards spent.

Home Depot: Shovels, ice spade, rugs for snowy boots. :)

And that was that. We unpacked all that stuff, I put together the coffee table and little table and I decided I needed to take Monday off to get crap done. The hubs decided to try for our first fire in the fireplace, which resulted in the house filling up with smoke. Apparently the flue is a little temperamental.

Monday: Febreezed everything in the house to get rid of the smoky smell. Put together the dressers (PITA), unpacked the guest room, rest of the kitchen, put things where they needed to be. Most importantly, the cable guy came and hooked us up. Hooray! I didn’t feel at home until I was on the couch with the laptop checking my email.

I think we’re putting up our tree tonight. This week is going to fly by. I still have to buy my mom a Christmas gift. The hubs hasn’t even begun his shopping.


But we’re in our house. I LOVE it. Pictures coming soon.
